Genesee Chief (Barge), U10243, gale damage, 3 Sep 1878

Full Text

The barge GENESEE CHIEF, that was damaged in the great storm on Lake Huron, came in here yesterday, loaded with lumber. She is patched up in many places, and she has a new cabin in the place of the one that was stove in by the waves. It will be remember that both the captain and his wife were severely injured at the time of the accident.
